Wizards announced recently that their next big release will be a collection of classic dungeon converted into fifth edition. This is a departure from the previous 5e campaign books, and we’re left wondering if there won’t be another campaign until fall 2017. Let’s hope that this small foray into other worlds means a departure from the Realms as Chris Perkins has promised us.

Preorder Tales from the Yawning Portal

From wizards.com:

There are many iconic adventures and stories in the 43-year history (!) of Dungeons & Dragons that current fans may not have ever experienced. If you just got into D&D in the past few years, you likely haven’t braved the Tomb of Horrors or climbed White Plume Mountain or fought Against the Giants. Even longtime fans haven’t been able to fully explore the Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan or the Sunless Citadel with stats and monsters updated for the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons.

Now you can jump into some of the most popular D&D modules ever created with Tales from the Yawning Portal. Releasing wide on April 4th, this 248-page book contains seven full adventures including timeless classics and more recent best-sellers like Forge of Fury and Dead in Thay, all completely updated and ready to run using the latest D&D rules.

The cover of Tales from the Yawning Portal was illustrated by Tyler Jacobsen. It depicts Durnan the Wanderer, the longtime owner and barkeep of Waterdeep’s most famous tavern. Adventurers from all over the Forgotten Realms gather in the taproom at the Yawning Portal to trade stories of their exploits and rumors of far-off treasures, some even from other worlds in the D&D multiverse. The Yawning Portal is the one place you’d expect to hear tales of the seven dungeons in this book.

Look for Tales from the Yawning Portal in your local game store on March 24th! Otherwise, you can pick it up on April 4th, and start running these classic adventures for your gaming group. Even if you’re in the middle of a Storm King’s Thunder or Curse of Strahd campaign, clever Dungeon Masters and players can take inspiration from D&D’s history to infuse traps, challenges, monsters and magic items from these adventures into any session.

Recently I had the pleasure of working with the folks from Geeks New England. GNE is a high-quality blog and very entertaining live-play podcast. In the last episode, GNE played through one of our Haunted Encounters in their “The Secrets of the Lionheart Inn” episode.

According to GNE’s DM, Jeff Venancio:

Legends from Aeramis is a D&D actual play podcast, run using the fifth edition ruleset for Dungeons and Dragons.  Join Camden, the blood hunter whose hands are always hidden within gauntlets of steel, Leander, the “lawful evil” cleric with a likely unhealthy obsession with death, Talia, the ranger with a painful past and her alcohol-loving wolf Nova, and Evathon, the wild-child druid who only has only recently attempted to rejoin society.  These heroes travel across the land of Aeramis, seeking coin and working to protect the world from the newly re-emerged self-christened “Black King.”  Legends from Aeramis is available on iTunes and YouTube, and on geeksnewengland.org.  Go Like their Facebook page for information pertaining to episode releases.

Decrease Your Prep Time with New Products from Limitless Adventures

Underdark Encounters – Ten D&D 5e random encounters set in the deadly subterranean realms of the Underdark. This is our second product through the Dungeon Master’s Guild. While the majority of our products will still be offered on our website, DM’s Guild allows us an opportunity to use monsters, places, and NPCs that are normally not available to us under the terms of the Open Game License, like the Underdark.

Arcane Quarter – this Limitless Location is comprised of ten places in the magic district of a city. Each location has a detailed NPC, hooks for further D&D adventures (30 total), and in the case of the shops, products for sale. The Arcane Quarter can be attached to an existing setting in your game world, or combined with other Limitless Locations to create a unique city.

Limitless Backgrounds: Acolyte – this new line of adventures is written to incorporate your players’ backgrounds as seeds for adventure. These quests will draw upon skills and tools gained by the character in the days before they became an adventurer.
